Integrating Identity

CyberArk & Silverfort: Control access and authenticate users with this integrated identity solution

Identity has become the primary security focus of of all IT systems. It is the first piece of any security solution and a key component of a modern zero trust approach. A good identity system, where identity is the perimeter, enables organizations to both authenticate users and control access to their systems and data.

Silverfort and CyberArk are two of the world’s best identity solutions. When combined, they provide an unparalleled level of identity management and security. Keep reading to learn more about these powerful tools and how your organization can use them together.



First and foremost, Silverfort provides secure identity management. It deploys agentless and adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), which allows MFA into systems that cannot load agents. This helps close gaps and locks down a broader number of systems.

Silverfort can also monitor and understand the usage of credentials by users. Using artificial intelligence, it recognizes abusive or risky behavior and takes automated action to strengthen authentication requirements on the fly.

While adding agentless MFA helps secure more systems, it only addresses the authentication aspect of identity management. For granular access control, organizations pair Silverfort with CyberArk.



CyberArk provides an industry-leading broad suite of tools focused on access control and credential control. The cornerstone of the CyberArk suite is privileged access management (PAM). This provides the ability to lock-down administrative access to systems and take control of the passwords to keep them secure and current. It also provides an audit trail of the use of admin accounts as well as session playback abilities.

CyberArk’s endpoint management locks down end systems, which is where the majority of cyberattacks begin. By removing admin accounts and managing their use, organizations can eliminate escalation abuse and control lateral movement.

Finally, CyberArk’s secrets management allows organizations to secure the DevSecOps pipeline. CyberArk vaults the credentials used and utilizes references to credentials when they’re needed, eliminating hard-coded passwords or weak key references in the code.


An integrated identity solution

Great solutions on their own, Silverfort and CyberArk are even more powerful together. Silverfort helps make existing legacy authentication methods more secure without needing a lot of complicated engineering. It also eliminates the need for one-time passwords (OTP) when using remote desktop protocol (RDP) or secure shell protocol (SSH) for remote access, significantly reducing user friction and improving their experience without sacrificing strong authentication.

Meanwhile, CyberArk provides the means through which organizations can truly lockdown systems and provide access via a policy-based system. It is an essential tool for enterprise PAM that also injects invaluable security into the DevSecOps process.

Silverfort’s MFA capabilities make CyberArk an even more secure platform. This pairing is the ideal identity, credential, and access management (ICAM) solution for organizations building their zero trust architecture. Contact us to learn more or schedule a demo.
